Education Resources (SLC): Parent / Carer survey on the views of accessing mainstream school transport in August 2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

Mainstream School Transport

The Council is currently working with schools and operators to plan for pupils returning in August. However, whilst the physical distancing measures remain in place, it will not be possible for pupils to travel on local/school transport in the same numbers as before.

To accommodate physical distancing measures, the availability and capacity of public and mainstream school transport will be greatly reduced. It is expected that capacity may only be approximately 20% - 25% of the pre-COVID normal.

For those travelling by public transport these journeys may no longer be possible or may take longer. Pupils and staff who use public transport should therefore make alternative arrangements and/or plan their journey in advance and leave additional time where possible. As you maybe aware from national advice local and mainstream school transport vehicles will require to have measures in place for enhanced hygiene, to maintain physical distancing and all passengers should, and are expected to, use face coverings.

To assist with the Council’s planning for those pupils currently qualifying for mainstream school transport, we are seeking your initial views in the survey link below. A separate communication will follow to gauge parental views in respect of transport for those children with additional support needs(ASN) within ASN settings in schools, bases and units.

Please be assured this is not a final plan, and you will be contacted again regarding transport. This survey is simply to gather an indication of your views on this matter.

It would be very much appreciated if you could take a moment to complete this short survey.

We would ask that you complete this form by Sunday 14th of June.

Thank you.
